PUFFS: Or Seven Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic
About the show: For seven years a certain boy wizard went to a certain Wizard School and
conquered evil. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs... who just happened to
be there too. A tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world.
As a Puff myself, I love this piece not only because of the hilarious script and the style of
storytelling (7 years in 90ish minutes straight through!) but because at the heart of it all, it's a love
letter, offers Director Elizabeth Neuhauser. It takes all the things that Puffs are often seen as
weaknesses - being kind, friendly, hardworking, and loyal to a tee - and turns them into strengths,
into something to be proud of. You're taken on a journey through the eyes of these characters and
while laughs are abundant, the playwright (Matt Cox) doesn't shy away from serious themes and
heartfelt moments. What it means to be a Puff. To want to work hard no matter what life throws at
you. To want to play fair in a world that is anything but. Maybe those themes are universal. And
maybe, just maybe, there's a Puff in all of us.
